butler in normandy where the demolition of this dam has sparked a buckle between 2 opposing environmental visions. so south korea says pyongyang has launched 2 ballistic missiles off its east coast the 2nd such test in less than a week these missiles fired from the town of one sunday flew 250 kilometers south korea's foreign minister said such tests won't help ease tension on the korean peninsula an emergency meeting is being held in seoul let's check in with rob mcbride he's in sold it to take us through the latest reaction there rob. that's right kemal the urgency session of the national security council is still underway we're waiting to see what their official response is going to be but there's no escaping the seriousness of this event much as the current
9:05 am
administration probably would like to play it down for fear of de railing all of the hard work that's been done and the reconciliation process over the past year and a half or so as you mentioned there this is the 2nd such firing of missiles in less than a week and it's actually the 3rd firing of short range missiles as since may and this is in direct contravention of the landmark military agreement that was signed between north and south korea at a time when there was goodwill summits being held in pyongyang and so on that was meant to transform the whole korean peninsula that words among other things meant to make these sorts of launches a thing of the past so there is concern here in south korea south korea's defense minister has said that if the north continues with such provocations and threats
9:06 am
then the regime and its military would have to be concerned considered in his words an enemy so this is tough language coming from south korea of the moon j.n. ministration of president jay and has been trying to actors go between to get these reconciliations started and also join up north korea with the u.s. in talks so it is a concern for them there's also been a reaction from japan with japan's defense minister saying this is deeply regrettable and saying that it could be in contravention of u.n. sanctions all of this seems to be part of north korea strategy either through goodwill summits or by acts of coercion or pressure or lobbying and as we've seen in this missile launch possibly just downright. threats of trying to get a relief from these crippling sanctions it could well be you could make an argument for going back to the u.n. and asking for a tightening of the sanctions screw kimo ease that would threat there rob is that
9:07 am
maybe just what north korea is doing here you know whilst all this diplomacy goes on in the background every so often it almost wants to remind the world hey look we can still do this absolutely and they have said we're still waiting for an official statement about well what the intention was for this launch but they said after last week's launch that that was a solemn warning to south korea they're angry about the south koreans taking part in upcoming military exercises with the u.s. but beyond that they have been careful the north koreans not to direct any of their rattle anger directly at the u.s. administration and donald trump in particular but it is a way of reminding him in very forceful terms. they still have a nuclear arsenal and they want to get him back to the negotiating table they are very calculating the north koreans as they always are this is a short range missile the u.s. administration can say it is only a short range missile it's not one of the intercontinental ballistic missiles they
9:08 am
were testing back in 2017 but it is a way of reminding donald trump that it would just take one i.c.b.m. launch and that would take effectively a sledgehammer to his signature foreign policy achievement which is his relationship with north korea something for mr trump to think about obviously as we get closer to the all important election year ok robert bryant with all the updates from seoul thank you we heard from one park earlier founding director of the center for the study of global issues told us. donald trump the united states must make some concessions or there will be no deal with north korea. i think north korea is who willing to give up their nuclear program but we have to receive briquet did we sanction reduction with non-aggression a gram of agreement maybe peace treaty people a moderate normalization we have
9:09 am
a lot of things that we can offer but nothing has been offered to north korea and their missile as it is designed to demonstrate that they're willing to strike back at you for their cat or preemptive strike if they're educated they think they're constantly being threatened because american troops are stationed in south korea in japan in in guam so that part of the world they said very heavy on that by the united states and north korea is very unhappy about that and threaten that in terms of their security so we have to really sit down talk about mutual concessions we have to give us something to them by way of reducing. sanctions and canceling the joint military exercise

compromising the arms sales to south korea so these things would have to be coming together with north koreans concessions to ward complete denuclearization well the tension on the korean peninsula is likely to be discussed at amazing a foreign ministers of southeast asian nations are they gathering in bangkok for the meeting of asio on as it's known and they will be joined by the u.s. secretary of state might compare as well as the chinese and russian counterparts the region is facing many challenges including the dispute over the south china sea on the ongoing us china trade war more from scott hietala. as thailand hosts the foreign ministers of aussie and regional forums this week what's due to be discussed won't just be about southeast asia one issue of particular focus the tension on the korean peninsula possible discussions on the next summit between chairman kim jong un and president donald trump could take place after 3 meetings
9:11 am
the leaders have made no progress on moving toward an agreement over north korea's nuclear program this after north korea last week tested what it said were new tactical guided weapons and released photos of a new submarine the meetings here in bangkok could be viewed as an opportunity for the 1st to try him at summits were held in member nations singapore and vietnam so ossie on an attempt to provide a kick to me wall for the talks being for the big players need to broker 3rd party mediator of some kind to provide an environment a setting for for talks building in the past 6 party talks didn't go anywhere so perhaps if they can be persuaded that you know a 3rd party platform. would be the key catalysts the key confidence builder. long an issue for several of the aussie on nations china's claim of territory in the south china sea but there has been
9:12 am
a lack of consensus about what should be done within discussions with china on a territorial code of conduct are due this week. some feel that part of the problem is the rapid expansion of chinese influence and reach region wide through infrastructure investment and commercial and military deals and that's not just undermining the block critics say but also enabling china in its push for greater control over the south china sea it must be the collective. head to tell the. story from the international law from the reality pie no view you have no. reasons no facts to support your claim to the whole of which i know but the meetings won't all be about politics as a group has the 5th largest economy in the world so trade agreements in the trade war between the us and china will no doubt be discussed on the sidelines it's not hard to al-jazeera bangkok. we're looking at some breaking news coming out of
9:13 am
afghanistan at least 32 people killed this is in a roadside bomb attack on a bus that's happened in the province in the west the bus traveling on the kandahar highway at the time women and children among those killed at least 32 people we're hearing killed we will hope to have more on that story. in this news bulletin. meanwhile the sudan's ruling military suspended schools across the whole country indefinitely announcement after security forces fired live ammunition and tear gas at protesters during mass rallies they were protesting the killing of 5 students on monday the military leaders have condemned the killings but say it's not clear who was behind them reports from. neighboring ethiopia. voicing anger thousands of demonstrators mostly high school and university students came
9:14 am
out on tuesday in sudan's capital for assume and other cities they're protesting the deaths of fellow protesters in in north korea defense state on monday thanks when protesters came out decrying the lack of bread and hike in transportation prices security forces opened fire in response killing several and entering dozens others. had blood for blood we will never accept anything but justice civilian we salute everyone and their obey city for standing for the sake of the nation it is an epic moment in our country's history was made. to the military council is that it's time to negotiate a bus stop killing our people the students in the streets this military council is nothing but riddance of the old regime and they must step down thank you this protestors were also met with tear gas and live ammunition with doctors reporting several injuries as

a result the protesters are also demanding justice and accountability following an announcement from an investigation committee that the ruling military is not to blame for killing protesters on june 3rd when a month long pro-democracy sit in was attacked by the army the military council has been willing to dance in ousting longtime president already bashir in april they've been in talks with the opposition coalition known as the forces of freedom in change to form a transitional government and initial agreement was signed earlier this month. but a final deal is yet to be rehearsed talks for that final deal have been repeatedly postponed over the past few days with uncertainty on when talks would resume some analysts say what happens next depends on the military council you know the box hopes right now of the gate or the transitional military council it is their responsibility to reform the security forces therefore i think there is some trust and confidence on the part of the population that in the event that this person
9:16 am
doesn't go are courting to their demands that they have the right to go out and protest people do want some form of reckoning. in terms of some of the abuse of them violence and that have been perpetrated by the formerly jim but at the same time i think you do need some kind of principled compromise to give this transitional fossils a chance but anger amongst the demonstrators is high as is the demand for justice as some demand a halt to negotiations and as protest has continued to be met with violence and certainty over sudan's future continues and if it can steer itself to a stable transitional period people morgan al-jazeera i did. but the head of the ruling military junta has blamed the opposition for the violence we have you this protest has deviated from its course the group the cold for the protests had exploited the students and other groups and attacked the market one of the banks and looted some of its property some people say they were people on top of the

kilometers south korean military joint chiefs of staff say they are monitoring the situation in case of additional launches. on the korean peninsula just one of the challenges to be discussed at a meeting of foreign ministers of southeast asian countries there in bangkok for the meeting is going to be joined by the u.s. secretary of state might as well. and sudan's ruling military council says it suspended schools across the country until further notice announcement comes after security forces fired live ammunition and tear gas at protesters. held against the killing of students on monday. democratic candidates hoping to take on donald trump in the 2020 presidential race have clashed in the 1st of 2 televised debates this week bernie sanders elizabeth warren better were wrong they were among some of the front running can contenders
9:21 am
who took the stage in detroit. a lot of hate in this one as well as they share their views on all sorts of issues health care climate immigration as well it's getting late in detroit but we've still got john hendren with us who watched that debate really john that you know they're all on the same side another vying for one spot here but they are on the same side and they're all really firing against each other. that's right jim all this was a debate that was set up for confrontation the answers were short and the candidates knew many of them that they had one shot to either move up in the polls or get out of the race they're now 20 and that simply too many to be sustained by fundraisers and soup orders and the next round of debates has tighter rules about who gets in so it will likely go from about 20 now to less than 10 then so these candidates took shots at each other when the moderates when it came on to health care were criticizing the 2 top runners in tonight's debate that is bernie sanders
9:22 am
and elizabeth warren both of them want a government health plan for all one that will limit nate's private insurance and one of their rivals said we don't want to be the party of taking things away elizabeth warren shot back we're democrats we don't want to take away health care why are you using republican talking points at another point tim ryan a congressman said to bernie sanders of that health care plan he said you don't know the plan will do all that and bernie said i do know i wrote the damn bill so the confrontation was real the candidates were really trying to move forward here and it does look like in terms of talk time the progressives elizabeth warren bernie sanders really seemed to dominate that time warren in particular did so and she shot back at her rivals she accused some of them of having small ideas and
9:23 am
spinelessness instead of the kind of authority and leadership that she said she would bring to this and the reason it's all being done here in detroit is that this is a bit of a sore point for democrats because the parent state of michigan was one of several states including pennsylvania and wisconsin that were considered the blue wall the democratic strongholds nobody as a republican had won here and michigan since 90. $88.00 but donald trump won each of those states by crumbling that blue wall so the debate got a bit fierce it's likely to get even fiercer tomorrow night that's when joe biden the former vice president also a moderate is going to stand right in between 2 of his greatest critics so tomorrow night we expect to see a little more fireworks and tonight we certainly had some to start with all right john grab some sleep another busy night coming up for you john hendren is in detroit there now u.s. civil rights lawyers say more than $900.00 migrant children have been separated
